A welcome to friends of the Future and Past! 

Farewell to the friends of the present! 
Your mem'ry, while love and while friendship 
shall last. 
Shall strengthen and grow the more 
pleasant. 

These pages, perhaps, in the long years ahead, 

Many a long, weary hour may cheer 
With sweet dreams of the Past — only past, 
and not dead. 
And the days at St. Mary's so dear.

St. Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be. 

They love thy high praises to sing. 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling. 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name. 

Ajar, out of sight of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles. a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 



Me if Ml Those Endearing Young Charms") 

Beloved St. Mary's! how great is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure. 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure: 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 



May the future unite all the good of thy past 

II ith the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy hulls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — 

Of earnestness, wisdom, and love.

WAR-TIME ACTIVITIES 



The "Clean-Up Workers" 

In the dearth of available labor, and spurred on by "Clean-Up Week,"' some sixty of the girls 
volunteered to take charge of special sections of the Grove and keep them in condition. With the 
workers working in pairs, most of the Grove was covered by the various groups, and the sight of 
mower, rake, and sickle became a very familiar one. 

Twice a week inspections with grades were made, from April to Commencement, and the most 
efficient groups are to be announced on Class Day.

REV. ALDEKT SMEDES, D.D.. 1810-1877 
Founder (1842) ami First Rector (1842-1877) of St. Mary's School 



At tin 1 time "f the death of Dr. Smedes a tribute was paid to his memory by the Bishop in these 
words: "I take this occasion to express publicly, as my judgment, that Dr. Smedes accomplished 
more for the advancement of the Church in this Diocese, and for the promotion of the best interests 
of society within its limits, than any other man who ever lived in it. Under his care, and very much 
as the result of his intelligence, his firmness, and his tender affection for them, there went out from 
St. Mary's School, Raleigh, every year a number of young girls who, in culture, in refinement, and 
still more in elevation of mural and religious character, would compare favorably with the pupils of 
any other institution in this country. He knew not only how to teach, but how to govern, and to 
make himself honored as well as loved, and to constrain his pupils to feel that the years spent under 
his care were at the same time the happiest and most useful nf their lives. He has gone to his 
reward, but his work remains, and will remain from generation to generation." —Haywood's "Bishops 
of North Carolina" page 193. 








To Miss Katie 

To long for (ruth, to try to realize 
The highest that we see — that is the noblest 
Living; and that, dear friend, in all these years 
} our high sincerity, your love of love, 
i our hatred of deceit and scorii of all pretense 
Have helped us to desire. 

Thinking of you. 
We know that love and truth are real; 
That God and good are the eternal verities; 
Noisy ambition, hard-won fame, the wish 
For recognition even of worthy work, 
Beside these vital truths fade into nothingness. 
To do good, and to distribute of your love 
And of your strength to them that need — that 
Has been your life. And with such service 

God is pleased. 

Emilie W. McVea, 1900 



"Constant as the Northern Star, 
Of whose true, fix'd, and resting quality 
There is no fellow in the firmament." 



Miss Kate McKimmon, known affectionately 
as "Miss Katie" to all St. Mary's girls, is this 
year in her fifty-first year of devoted service lo 
the School. 

Entering as a little girl in 1867, from pupil 
she became teacher, and has continued her 
teaching without interruption since, being now 
in charge of the Primary School. 

As "Dormitory Mother" she won the hearts 
of her girls for many years, and her work fur 
and in the Chapel has been a very special part 
of her. 

Unreconstructed Southerner, but loyal Ameri- 
can, whole-hearted in her devotion to School 
and to Church, St. Mary's would hardly seem 
St. Mary's without "Miss Katie." 

Miss McVea paid tribute to her in the poem 
published above on her fiftieth birthday.

THE CHAPEL IN THE "60s 

om the drawing by Miss Liddell) 

















THE REV. BENNETT SMEDES, D.D. 
Second Rector of St. Mary's School, 1877-1897 

'"I am sure that every girl who lias been fortunate enough to count herself a St. Marys girl during 
the regime of Dr. Bennett Smedes lias felt the same sense of loving protection." 

"Strictly the head of his household, he was a companion of infinite tenderness, sympathy, and 
understanding, a man to lean upon, to look up to, 'to thank God for." 

"This old-time courtesy never left him in the performance of the slightest duty or amenity of life." 

"His firmness, his modesty, his mental attainments, his appreciation of the beautiful, and of bril- 
liancy and wit are well known to all who knew him." 








The original of the "Stage Coach Picture," so often used in The Muse to contrast the old days 
with later ones, was a drawing by Mrs. Gustave Blessner. Mr. Blessner, Musical Director at 
St. Mary's in the '40s, had it lithographed for use on the cover of some waltzes which he composed 
and had published in 1845. On the title page of the music, in addition to the Stage Coach picture, 
was printed: "The Flowers of the South: A Collection of Characteristic Waltzes, Composed for the 
Piano, and Dedicated tn the ^oung Ladies of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C, by Gustave Blessner." 




Miss Eleanor Clement 



Madame Clement was t lie first French teacher at 
St. Mary's, and her little daughter Eleanor accom- 
panied her to St. Mary's and became first a pupil and 
. then a teacher here. Later on she established a very 
successful girls' school at Germantown (Philadel- 
phia), Pa. At her death she left St. Mary's a $5,000 
fund to establish a scholarship in honor of her mother, 
and also made St. Mary's the residuary legatee of her 
estate. From this bequest of $35,000 the funds were 
derived for the building of Clement Hall, which was 
named in Miss Clements honor. 








THE RIGHT REVEREND THEODORE DuBOSE BRATTON, D.D. 

Bishop of Mississippi 

Third Rector of St. Mary's School, 1899-1903 

On the death of Dr. Bennett Smedes in 1899, the Trustees called "Mr. Bratton" to the Rectorship 
of the School. He had then been serving for some years as Rector of the Church of the Advent at 
Spartanburg, S. C. 

Dr. Bratton has a wonderful personality, and under his Rectorship St. Mary's went forward 
rapidly. The Rectory, "Senior Hall," and the Piano Practice Rooms were built and the "College 
Department" established. Dr. Bratton was greatly beloved by both his faculty and "his girls," and 
all were much distressed when in 1903 he accepted the call to the Bishopric of Mississippi. 

He has had an even deeper influence in his diocese and in the Church, and is now one of the 
powers in the House of Bishops. 

The picture above shows him as he looked in the days when he was Rector of St. Mary's. 




Mrs. Mary Johnson Iredell 

\\!iM has given the greater part of a lile 
of usefulness to the work of St. Mary's, 

as student, as student assistant, as 
teacher, as traveling representative, as 
organizer of the Alumna?, and as Presi- 
dent of the Alumna; Association.

ment. It has done effective work in aiding the piogress of the School.

is celebrated as Founders' Day, and on May 12th. the date of the first opening of St. Mary's, which

Hail! St. Mary's 

In a grove of stately oak trees, 

W here the sunlight lies, 
Stands St. Mary's, true and noble, 

'Neath the southern skies. 

Far and wide, oh! sound her praises, 

Chorus full and free. 
Hail, St. Mary's, Alma Mater. 

Hail, all hail to thee! 

Well we love the little chapel, 

Ever hold it dear; 
Hear the echoes of the music 

Rising soft and clear. 
Far and wide. etc. 

There the ivy and the roses 

Climb the old stone wall; 
There the siveet, enticing bird-notes 

Sound their magic call. 
Fur and wide, etc. 

Ami the bonds of friendship strengthen 

As her beauties charm; 
We draw close to Alma Mater, 

Trust her guiding arm. 
Far and wide, etc.

The Class Pqehi 



There's a long, long road behind us 

Through our school-days now gone, 
And the road which lies before us 

Ever beckons us on. 
We have worked and we have waited 

For this day which is ours. 
Through cloudy days and sunshine, 

The happiest of hours. 

'Tis a long farewell were bidding 

To our joyous school-days. 
For we have reached the forking. 

The parting of the ways. 
There's a long, long way before us. 

And 'tis onward we go, 
W ith heavy hearts at parting. 

But hopes all aglow. 

Down this way which we are starting 
There's a future unknown; 

We are leaving all the old things, 
Old purposes have flown. 

In the future that we're facing, 
Alma Mater, to you 

We'll owe great truths and ideals 

To e'er keep us true.

Class Prophecy, 1918 



There was once at dear St. Mary's, 

In the year iiineteen-eighteen, 
I Senior Class an paralleled, 
II hose like leas never seen. 



A great playwright is Aline Hughes, 

And famous, too. is she; 
She still is just as talented 

As lee all said she'd be. 



Tis sure they will, not soon forget 

That sail ret happy dale 
When one and all they ventured forth 

Each one to learn her lute. 

Of course, there have been changes and 

Surprises quite a few. 
For some of them you'd hardly know. 

Hut just the same it's true. 

"K. DraNe" into an office went, 

But not long did she stay, 
For now she is her boss's boss. 

tnd has his name, they say. 

"RavIE," /hough always popular 

As any one could lie. 
Has now given up her friends 

To enter a nunnery. 

K. Hughes, the baby of us all. 

Her lot in society cast; 
She wears French heels five inches high, 

And has grown up at last. 

She hail so many lovers that 

She never could deckle; 
So Agnes is a spinster now. 

II hose blue/, cat is her pride. 



H. Mason lost her dignity 

And went upon the stage. 
She does the newest dances, and 

Is really quite the rage. 

Henrietta got excited once. 

Although lis strange to tell; 
She spoke above a whisper, and 

Has since been known to yell. 

Bui as a country school-marm 

G. Pleasants takes the cake, 
Though, as teacher just as pupil. 

She cannot keep awake. 

Then there was studious Bessie Folk, 

Married when only twenty. 
As an adoring farmer's wife 

She lives in peace and plenty. 

Maud Miller still is interested 

In everything that's going; 
And now that woman's day has come — 

She spends her time a-beauing. 

Novella is an admiral's wife, 

And proud of her husband is she! 

She charms him with her flute-like voice 
And he listens rapturously. 



And as for Helen Laughinghouse, 

She tried to be a poet. 
But so far she's had poor success — 

As if this didn't show it.

The I nter -Society Debate 



SATURDAY, MAY 4. 1918, 8 P. M. 



Resolved, That immigration into the United States should be restricted by a 

literacy test. 

Affirmative — Sigma Lambda : 

Aline Hughes, '18. and Lucy London Anderson, "20. 
Negative — Epsilon Alpha Pi: 

Elleis Booth Lav. "19, and Millicent Blanton, '21. 

Judges: Dean Thomas P. Harrison and Prof. W. A. Withers of State College; Supt. Frank M. 

Haui'EH of tlie Raleigh Schools. 



The judges decided the debate unanimously in fa 



of the affirmative. 



The annual Inter-Society Debates were inaugurated in 1902. and were held each year up to and 
including 1913. In those twelve years the Sigma Lambda debaters were victorious eight times and 
the Epsilon Alpha Pi debaters four times. The Alpha Rho Society was organized in 1912, and in 
1914, 1915, and 1917 there was a series of three debates, each society debating the other two. In 
1914 Alpha Rho won both debates and Epsilon Alpha Pi defeated Sigma Lambda. In 1915 Epsilon 
Alpha Pi won both debates and Sigma Lambda defeated Alpha Rho. In 1917 each society won and 
lost. In 1916 the debates gave way to the Shakespearean Contest, in which Sigma Lambda was pro- 
nounced the winner. 

Including all seventeen years, Sigma Lambda has won nine times from Epsilon Alpha Pi, and 
Epsilon Alpha Pi has won seven times from Sigma Lambda.

The Literary Society Activities 

The Literary Societies have been leading organizations at St. Mary's since their establishment. 
Named after the leading southern poets— Edgar Allan Poe and Sidney Lanier — they hold weekly 
meetings, with special Inter-Society Meetings to celebrate the special holiday occasions— Thanks- 
giving, Lee's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, etc. For fifteen years they have held annual Inter- 
Society Debates, and for two years they cooperated with the English Department, under the guidance 
of Miss Thomas, in an Inter-Society Contest in writing, which included poetry, story, and essay. 

This year the Societies are alternately editing the Literary Section of The Muse, furnishing the 
material for their numbers. Judges will decide which has excelled in this for the year, and th 
result will be announced on Class Day. 

The Societies choose annually the Commencement Marshals, the Chief Marshal being chost 
each in turn.

To St. Mary's Chapel 

Annie Sutton Cameron, '16 

Once more within thy sacred walls 

We meet, but not alone. 
The hearts of all who hold thee dear 

Meet with us here as one. 
We feel their silent blessing 

Upon us as we pray. 
The hopes and prayers that once were theirs 

Still live in us today. 

For thee they labored, thee they strove; 

They loved thee and passed on. 
Leaving to us an heritage 

Of all that they had won. 
A sacred charge they gave us 

In trust divine and deep: 
Thine honor and thy name they left 

For us to guard and keep. 

Thou art to us the token 

Of that we hold most dear. 
Mute bond of love unbroken. 

Thy sheltering arms we near. 
Thou dost our love enkindle. 

Our loyal hearts enroll 
In kinship stronger than of blood. 

The kinship oj the soul. 

And through the discord of the world. 

Thy music, rising clear. 
Dispels the doubt that once we had. 

Casts out our craven fear. 
Hopes by defeat once shattered 

And sullied with the dust. 
We pledge again at thy dear name. 

In holy love and trust. 



Like these who loved and labored, 

Led by thy steadfast light. 
We pass from thee with strengthened hands 

To battle for the right. 
And as ive strive to follow 

The pathway they have trod. 
He pray God's peace be ever thine. 

Oh. little house o) God.

A Spring Day 

Mary T. Yf.llott, '21 

The last pale star fades in the bright'ning sky. 

And heaven is overspread with rosy hue. 
The moon welcomes her lord with weary sigh. 

And earth is bathed in sparkling silver dew. 
Now from the neighboring wood is clearly heard 
The reveille of many a joyous bird. 

— 'Tis Dawn. 

High in the azure dome of heaven the sun 

Casts o'er the breathless world his burning smile; 

The very zenith of his path is won — 
Idle, without a shadow, rests the dial. 

A moment of tense expectation, then 

The busy world takes up its task again. 

— Tis Noon. 

Deep stillness reigns, and in the glowing west, 
All red. and golden with reflected light, 

The sun sinks slowly to his peaceful rest. 

And earth is bowed before the coming night. 

Deepens the sky, and now, aloft, afar, 

Majestic hangs a single glorious star. 

— "Tis Dusk. 



Throughout the day, from Dawn till Twilight fell, 
"Twas in the air — a something strange and new — 

J ague murmurs and faint whisperings that tell 
Of sunny days and skies forever blue. 

Rejoice! the birds have caroled it all day. 

Earth, heaven, sun. moon, and all things living say, 

Tis Spring!"

Time flies swiftly — oh, so swiftly — 
Bears us onward in his flight; 
Yesterday, today, tomorrow 

Are as nothing in his sight. 
All that's left of days now passing

With a sigh we shall remember — 

Wishing for these days again I
